Summary
"On March 9, 1963, LAPD officers Karl Hettinger and Ian Campbell pull over a vehicle for making an illegal U-turn and find themselves held at gunpoint by two seasoned armed robbers. Forced to give up their guns and drive to a deserted road, both officers face the horror of becoming victims in a mob-style execution--but only one is able to escape into the bleak darkness of an onion field"--Container
